Weather: As you know, x-country running is traditionally run rain or shine. Rain, wind and heat are a few of the uncontrollable conditions that make cross country running unique.   Please be prepared!


Wash Rooms: There are washroom and change room facilities at the point.  Loughborough PS and Sydenham HS have asked that we do not enter their building.
